A Bit of Summer Zing!!

Hi all, Hope you are well!
Here is another card I made on holiday. My daughter, Emily, is outwardly a confident child, with things she is familiar with, but she does have some issues with thinking she is good at anything. This holiday really highlighted that she is not at all happy about growing up. She is becoming very conscious about her developing body!!! I really am not ready for a 10 year old going through puberty!!!!!
Anyway I'm waffling!!!!! The reason I mentioned Em is because she choose the colours for this card. She has a really good eye for colour and design and is a fantastic artist, though she doesn't think so!!!

I have coloured lots of images using my new toys, I think so far this is my favourite! Don't you just Love this girl's boots!!

I have begun to experiment a little with cheek colour! I think it really makes the image stand out more!

I am trying to get Emily to make more cards and projects! Its a slow process but I really do think she has a talent, I know I'm bias!!!!! She does sneak away sometimes and create, usually acquiring things from my stash. Its amazing how much someone who doesn't like crafting ends up with in her room!! LOL !!
